I wish I could give y'all something bright and cheery today, but I'm not really feeling bright and cheery.
TV stations here have been doing nonstop Hurricane Ike coverage, and, quite frankly, it's getting tough to watch. I can't believe how much has been lost. To see entire neighborhoods that have been swept away is unbelievable. I've seen hurricane disasters on TV before, but to have it happen so close is so much worse. It's just so real.
Schools are still closed. My offices are still closed. I know a lot of buildings downtown were damaged, but I'm not sure how my building fared.
I'm one of the lucky ones. I have water, electricity, and gas in my car. So many people are still waiting for those luxuries.
Sorry to be such a Debbie Downer today.
